Philosophy of care
“I strive to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to all of my patients by not just taking the time to listen to their concerns, but also by helping to formulate a solution that takes into account their particular life circumstances.”

Why Dr. Satterfield went into medicine
“I wanted to go into medicine because of the time I spent during college shadowing a great physician who was providing cancer treatment to a close family member.”

Favorite advice to give patients
“Listen to your body. It will usually tell you when things are going awry.”

Van Buren, Arkansas

“Outside of work, I enjoy cycling, hiking, fishing, leatherworking and reading.”
